The Tech Party will be in/near the garage behind the showroom starting at 12:00 PM. There is ample room for your trailer or rig in back of the dealership.
Bob closes at noon so please do not arrive early.

The Region will provide burgers, hot dogs, and soda, if you would like to bring something else to share, feel free to do so.

There are no major changes for this year, Snell SA 2000 or newer helmets are still acceptable. Now is the time to check your belts and harnesses, remember SFI belts are good until December 31st of the year two years after the date of manufacture. If for example the date of manufacture is in 2008 the belt was good until Dec 31st 2010. You need a new belt. FIA belts are normally good for 5 years and the date of expiration will be on the belt, they are good until the last day of the year marked. It is not too early to think about the requirement for head and neck restraints; they will be required as of 1/1/12. They must meet SFI 38.1 or ???

Come and share your winter work woes or come just for the camaraderie

Note that the inspection is for cars that are to be raced in SCCA Club Racing. Annual tech inspection is required and has to be done before you go on track. If you don’t want to waste time at your first event this season, hustle up and get your car ready!

If you don’t have a race car to inspect, show up anyway, it’s a fun afternoon.

Bring your personal safety equipment – helmet, driver’s suit and arm restraints if required for your class.

Seat and shoulder belts will be date checked.

If you need a vehicle logbook, please contact Jack Hanifan as soon as possible.
